The re-entry module successfully returned to Earth on May 8, landing at the Dongfeng Landing Site in the Inner Mongolia autonomous region. It was then recovered by personnel from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center.

The new spacecraft's prototype, consisting of re-entry and service modules, was lifted into low Earth orbit on the maiden mission of China's Long March 5B heavy-lift carrier rocket on May 5 from the Wenchang Space Launch Center in Hainan province.
